Right after I replied your question, a question of mine came to me. I wonder if you are aware that this hotel is on the bay side but not right on the ocean. it takes a short walk through a tunnel under the main street to reach the beach. It should not spoil your fun after all. For that being said, a suite with ocean view is important. In additions, I would not chose a villa with a play pool if I had a 1 year old with me for the safety reason.
